The race started off fast, but by the third hurdle, Muhammad was in front, this move according to her was because the seeded athletes were drawn behind her.

Coming into the home stretch, Inoescu and Krais were closing the gap, but Muhammad, who looked the strongest, held her nerve to cross the line ahead.
